USA has put in an order for a docu-soap about a criminal defense attorney.
“Partners in Crime” (which is apparently a working title) has been ordered to series. The show is about Mario Gallucci and partner/best friend “Big” Lou Gelormino taking on infamous cases.
The show, slated for a 2013 debut, is produced by Peacock Productions.
“All In” (also a working title) has also been ordered to pilot. The show is about sports handicapper Brandon Lang, who will take unsuspecting families on “the ultimate gaming adventure” for the opportunity to win big money. Matthew McConaughey played Lang in the film “Two for the Money.”
A docu-series tentatively titled “The Cowboy Way” has also been put into development. It is about men and women who work on a cattle ranch in Texas, and will be produced by Raw TV.
“Our approach to reality storytelling is to showcase a broad spectrum of life's real characters," Heather Olander, senior VP of alternative programming, said in a release. “By partnering with these reality heavyweights, whose distinct voices have influenced the genre, we are offering audiences a new reason to engage with USA.”
“Bride or Best Man” has also been previously announced, and will begin production in November.
